You can also search through our site and our KnifeWebGuide.com™ for specific items and it might be possible to find some helpful value information that way.

There are a number of online appraisal** services. Remember, an online appraiser cannot view your item personally. The appraisal** will only be as good as the service you contact and as good as the information you provide. If you believe your item to be of particular merit, you may wish to contact a more traditional appraiser and have the piece viewed personally. You can find appraisers by going to any search engine (such as http://www.google.com) and typing "appraiser" into the search category. You can also find a listing of appraisers in Maloney's Antiques & Collectibles Resource Directory book .

You can also visit Knife Web Guide - Appraisals, which has several other appraisals** firms. There are numerous other firms and these sites should not be considered as personal recommendations. Before contracting with any appraiser, do your homework and find out exactly what they can provide you and how much it will cost.

eBay Marketplace Research is available in three subscription options to help meet your specific needs. Pick the option that's right for you and expand your knowledge immediately!

* Byron is happy to provide FREE knife evaluations to customers of CutlersCove.com. Please include your invoice number or purchase date and total along with your request. Customers, you may email Byron now with the detailed information outlined above to receive your FREE evaluation. Customers are anyone who has purchased the knife, sheath, box, etc. from us. If you purchase the item elsewhere then our appraisal service fee is $35 per item.

Good luck!

Appraisals** May Vary
Be savvy about appraisals: they can vary depending on type and timing. Probate appraisals reflect the fair market value of an item (and the associated demand for that item), while insurance appraisals indicate the retail replacement cost. Since antiques and collectables can appreciate over short periods of time, keep written appraisals current. And note that typically, appraisals offer not a single dollar amount, but an estimated value.

Provenance Matters
Provenance is an object's history, which can include its period, owners and maker. Any antique with an impressive provenance -- for instance, a piece that can be connected to a specific creator or collector -- is often of much greater importance than an identical piece without such origins. Hence, provenance is an important part of the investment and the object.

**Appraisal, evaluation, rating, valuation, estimate, history or assessment service - a valuation of property by the estimate of an authorized person: as a : the determination of the fair value of an object such as a knife or sword. b : the classification of something with respect to its worth [syn: assessment] c : a document appraising the value of something (as for insurance or taxation) [syn: estimate, estimation]

If you want to know the history or value of your knife or sword from us we consider that an appraisal and we have a fixed charge of $35 for any information about your object including how old, or where it was made, what kind of metal used in the blade, any information about your knife or sword there is a fee for us to work up that for you.

Our $35 appraisal fee is never more or less per knife. If we cannot do a professional appraisal for you there is no charge and we will return your payment in full.
